I purchased my 1991 318is in 1991, as
my first BMW. I enjoyed the
performance, although my driving style
is far from pushing a car. The BMW
318is attracted me because of the small
size yet interior room and seating for
four. The car is now 12 years old and
still looks like new and runs great. I
found a local German machanic who did
all the service beyond what was covered
by the warrenty.
Size and style of this small four seater
I was told that the 318 had a history
of problems with water pumps, and air
conditioning. My 318is was no
exception. Machanical problems were
fairly typical of all cars I have owned.
